NEW R&D
Projects

SEA-TITAN

Objectives:

  • Design, Construction, Test and Validation of an innovative second generation Direct Drive Linear Electric Generator Power Take-Off (PTO) for a Wave Energy Converter;
  • Analysis of the application of this crosscutting and modular solution;
  • Assessment of the future application of superconductors to increase the power capture ratio from 19% to ~70%.

 

Highlights:

  • 4 competing Wave Energy Technology developers
  • Industry/ Technology: EDP CNET (PT), Engie Fabricom (BE), Wedge Global (ES), Corpower (SE).
  • Academia and R&D partners: CIEMAT (ES) and WavEC (PT)

 

NEW R&D’s Scope:

Lead WP7, with a focus on assessing the current status of the ocean energy industry, vis-à-vis the future commercialization of the technology developed
